I was a simple movie night out. Thought go to Kelsey's. Big mistake. Don't go for the food. The wing where over cooked. The burger was dry and flavorless. The powder mash potatoes was the only thing that had somewhat of a flavor. The service was OK just don't go for the food.

Went to Kelsey's for a birthday date with my sister. We were seated right of way in the bar area, it was a busy night. However, we were seated first, about 5 minutes later another couple beside us were seated and then about 10 minutes later another couple a few tables down from us were seated. We sat for about...

I usually love going to Kelsey's. I have dined at Kelsey's for over 20 years and today was one of the more disappointing times I have had. My server didn't seem too eager. She brought me a sample of sauce for me to try, but as I didn't have any utensils, I had to go get a straw just to... More

We waited along time for our waitress. To then wait along time for our drinks. To then wait along time for our dinner. The food was just ok. My husband and I shared fajitas. My kids had chicken fingers. The funnel cake fries were really good, it was enough for 5 of us.

We recently went for a meal in between games d during a hockey tournament for a team lunch. We had reservations so the restaurant knew we coming! We waited for an hour and a half before getting any food and when it came the kids table was one of the last to be served! The food was was average, nothing... More

Hello Liss, We definitely dropped the ball this day. It was a difficult day for our team in many ways and not one we are proud of. We are normally known as a team headquarters, and despite the greater challenges of serving large groups, we are usually are able to take great care of large parties. This was a bad... More

It's a popular spot for a business lunch. Generally good service. Food is quick. Good variety and portions... some too big for lunch to be honest.

Asked for a booth and staff accommodated - had to wait a little, but staff was great. Restaurant is loud - not a place to go if you want to talk to people at your table. . . Had wings and nacho's . Both were good. Ask for the CAA discount if you have a CAA card!

I have been to many of the Kelsey’s restaurants over the years. Two things I know for sure, they are consistent and fish & Chips will be my favorite thing to order until they bring back all you can eat wings. Remember those, at that time they introduced about 10 sauces as well. In this case we were on our... More

We recently had dinner with friends at this Kelsey's. The restaurant was fairly full but the layout allowed one to still hear conversation and so it was a nice place to eat and talk. Our friends enjoyed their salad and burger but I found my pasta to be bland and I had to add salt to perk it up a... More
